's possible the president did not know the nsa was monitoring personal phone calls of 35 world leaders? >> is it possible, sure, it is possible. that's a disturbing fact in itself. the president is left in this awkward position where neither of the two main explanations is all that -- you know, all that appealing. either he didn't know or he did know. either one he gets in trouble. you mention the bush book, which is very nice of you to mention, it does go back to the bush administration. these are the same issues, right, for going on for more than a decade. to have begun in 2002 happened during the run up to the war in iraq. in that time we were bugging delegations at the u.n. trying to get a resolution through about that. what president obama has done inherited surveillance structure he said he was going to change but, in fact, has kept broadly intact. >> yeah. indeed in the "wall street journal" it says officials at the nsa has so many eavesdropping operations under way it wouldn't have been practical to brief him on all of them. these decisions are made at the nsa. the president do
everybody. i think it's because of nsa surveillance. i think it's because of syria and the problems related to that. i think when you put all of these things together, people are looking at the president and saying you know, you're not fixing the problems. >> i think one of the problems, too, has been something the republicans have pushed and pushed it subtly for once, and that is the whole idea that he didn't know anything about anything. republicans have put that, you know, you bring up benghazi, what did you know, when did you know it, you bring up did he understand what was going on with the website. well, no, he really didn't know it. so did he know we were spying on our closest friends, well, no, the president didn't know that. i think it gives people this uneasy sense. we're already in uneasy times economically. obama care just superimposes itself over that and people thinking something that we talk about at my kitchen table is changing here, and that's important. it's not some place far away. it's right here. then you add on top of that the sort of president that republicans say is
.s. officials reports that the nsa ended a program used to spy on german chancellor angela merkel and some other top world leaders after an internal white house review this summer. meanwhile a top republican lawmaker is defending the nsa surveillance program abroad saying it keeps allies "safe." congressman mike rogers told our candy crowley the reports that the u.s. spied on millions of french citizens is misguided. >> maybe there's something more to that. i argue if the french citizens knew exactly what that was about they'd be applauding and popping champagne corks. it's a good thing, keeps the french safe t keeps the u.s. safe t keeps our european allies safe so this whole notion that we're going to go after each other on what is really legitimate protection of nation state interests i think is disingenuous candidly. >> mike rogers calling it disingenuous, something like that classic scene from "casablanca." >> everybody is to leave here immediately. this cafe is closed until further notice. clear the room at once! >> how can he close me up? >> i'm shocked, shocked to find that gambling is g
obama is no longer the most powerful person in the world given the recent fallout over the nsa leaks, the debt battle, and what "forbes" predicts is an early onset lame duck presidency. the magazine dropped the president from number one to a different slot and handed it to vladimir putin. they argue the autocratic leader of a former super power is now stronger than the, quote, handcuffed commander in chief. spoiler, no word yet from the white house. i'm sure the president is just devastated. anybody buying this? >> you know, i mean, i don't want to go too crazy with this. i don't know that "forbes" gave putin the top billing for all the right reasons, but i think there is definitely something to be said for the fact that this president, through no fault of his own, because a certain grouping of the republican party have decided they would basically do whatever it takes to keep anything that he wants to have accomplished from being accomplished, i think he does lack a certain power at this point. now, that could be rectified with a strong 2014, which republicans are doing everything i
that president obama knew that the nsa was eavesdropping on german chancellor angela merkel's personal phone calls. this as we hear of another bombshell. the nsa reportedly monitored 60 million phone calls made in spain in just a single month. here's jay carney just a few moments ago talking about that scandal. >> was the president kept out of the loop about what the nsa was doing? >> josh, what i can tell you is two things.ibz first, i'm not going to get into details of internal discussions. but the president clearly feels strongly about making sure that we are not just collecting information because we can, we do not and will not monitor the chancellor's communications. today's world is highly interconnected. and the flow of large amounts of data is unprecedented. innovation is going to continue. if we're going to keep our citizens and our allies safe, we have to continue to stay ahead of these changes. >> fox news digital politics editor, host of "power play," joins me now. he used a favorite word of mine. executive producer jen williams, this is juicy stuff, chris, right? >> it's discomf
alexander. those reports completely pauls and said it was not the nsa or u.s. in any form that was gathering this data. it was, in fact, european countries doing so. european intelligence services. two, the data was not the content of phone calls or phone calls themselves. this was part of a joint operation, the u.s. and nato allies that have nothing to do with the countries, spain and france, but had do with military operations abroad. >> we will speak to mike rogers. chairman of the house intelligence meeting with me later this hour. jim sciutto for that report. wlaets go to the crisis over obama care. and where it is heading. the official responsible for the obama care website today formally publicly apologized before congress for all of the problems that the users have been having and now into week five. does the president himself own apology for pledges he made repeatedly selling the affordable care act? >> putt like your doctor, you can keep your doctor under the reform proposals we put forward. if you like your private health insurance plan you can keep it if you like the plan you hav
. >>> allegations that the nsa was spying on the german chancellor angela merkel, and we asked who could have authorized such a mission? >> the revelations about the nsa spying have embarrassed washington but who is responsible? i had a chance to speak with someone who actually ran the nsa as well as the cia. michael hayden. listen in. i asked him who could give the order to spy on the leader of a friendly country. >> what you get are very specific intelligence requirements from our national command authority, and they are laid out to the intelligence community and then the intelligence community goes forward and lays out a collection plan the best way to get that very needed information. occasionally, fareed, occasionally, what you have is political guidance kind of being placed on top of your operational planning. i had political guidance while i was director of nsa. i had targets. i had legitimate needs, but i was told frankly back off, that target's too sensitive. i don't want you doing that at this time for this purpose. >> does that mean that somebody in the white house very high up wou
. >> now get ready to speedway your way through the news. first to capitol hill. nsa program hearings. lawmakers questioning u.s. spy chiefs about accusations the nsa has tapped the calls of u.s. americans and u.s. allies too. >> what we do not do is spy unlawfully on americans or for that matter spy indesvictim natalie on the citizens of any country. we only spy for valid foreign intelligence purposes as authorized by law with multiple layers of oversight to ensure we don't abuse our authorities. >> the hearing comes after reports the nsa monitored german chancellor angela merkel's cell phone. and now to a utah courtroom where gypsy was back on the witness stand. she is the mistress of dr. martin mcneil the doctor accused of murdering his wife. prosecutors claim he drugged and drowned his wife so he could be with his mistress. moved into house nine days. and she received marriage proposal and $7,000 ring from him within months. michelle macneill was found dead. the defense says she died of heart disease. now to upstate new york the home of former nfl player brian holloway. teens tras
revelations from the nsa spying scandal. a spanish newspaper reports they collected data on 60 million phone calls in spain in a 33-day -- 30-day period. >> we're conduct a review. we're mindful that some of the disclosures have caused tension in our relationships. those relationships are vital to help keep americans safe. >> reporter: meanwhile, the wall street journal reported a at to eavesdropping on 45 leaders after learning about it on saturday. >>> we're still taking calls in our house call segment. thank you for joining use happy to be here. >> tell us about your clinical background and your special in pediatrics. >> i'm a general pediatrician. we see kids from birth into their early adult hood. we focus on all areas of their health. if they have specific diseases, we work with the special iflts at the university of maryland and make sure they get good preventive health care from birth on up. >> what advice would you see to keep your kids health thy? >> definitely getting a flu shot is a great way to stay healthy, keep them in school or worst yet, and new a hospital. the best way to
should stay. he watched the disclosure of nsa secrets by "the guardian" this year with interest as glenn greenwald champion eed as ed a e adversarial. he argued that impartiality is flawed and that people who are willing to not only acknowledge beliefs but publicly. what's wrong with that approach? >> there's nothing wrong with that approach. it's not the only approach that works. there has been greated adversarl coverage over the years. they were going after the trusts and corrupt political machines and they wrote with real edge to them. they also had the facts. they had the information. but more and more we're now in an era where thanks to the internet anybody with broadband access can be a commentator. that's great. the effect of the internet has been by in large a good thing. it's pulled mainstream media down from the god-like stature that it had for so long. that's terrific. i think in that world more than ever when you have these points of view, it's really useful to have somebody who tries to sort of play the arbiter. you know, the shortcoming of activist or adversarial journalism
intelligence gathering operations. >> reporter: but the head of the nsa warned that new limits on u.s. espionage could be dangerous. >> it's much more important for this country that we defend this nation and take the beatings than it is to give up a program that would result in this nation being attacked. >> reporter: the spy chiefs also flatly denied reports that they had collected tens of millions of phone records on citizens of spain and france. it turns out that it was spanish and french intelligence that gathered those phone records, not the united states. >> that was a quite a revelation. director clapper also talked about our allies spying on us. >> point blank, he said they do it all the time. in fact, that's why when the president decided he wanted to keep his blackberry, it went to u.s. intelligence so they could harden it. they were concerned that even here in washington d.c. that our friends and enemies could be trying to access whatever he was doing on his blackberry. >> thanks very much. >>> now to the other big fight at the white house. the president accused of break
current and former nsa contractors to come forward with their own secrets to reveal very soon. >> the worst yet to come, brian, thank you. >>> now to syria and to what could be a break through tonight in the effort to dismantle chemical weapons. there is word from the team of weapons inspectors that so far syria has kept its promise. the plants where those chemical weapons were made now destroyed. "world news" was there as that team began their high stakes mission three weeks ago. tonight a new milestone r alex marquardt in the region. how significant is this? >> reporter: the bottom line, this is a very good sign. syria has destroyed all of its declared equipment that it used to produce those deadly chemical weapons. the assad regime even beat the deadline by a day. we have to remember that chemical weapons are just a small part of this war that shows no sign of letting up. we spent a lot of time on both sides of this brutal fight and each is as committed as ever to defeating the other. the next date to watch closely is november 15th. by then syria's plan to destroy the stock
congress, the american congress. snowden, whose nsa leaks are still rattling cages met with a german lawmaker in moscow. fred pleitgen is in germany with more. >> reporter: hi, carol. i have the letter, it's interesting because it doesn't mention germany by name. the operative part of this letter says "i hope when the difficulties of this humanitarian situation" meaning the limbo he's in, in russia "have been resolved and i will be able to cooperate in the responsible finding of fact regarding the reports in the media" that of course pertains to the documents behind a lot of the media reports regarding the nsa for instance spying on the german chancellor but a lot of other things disclosed recently and from that and from his talks with edward snoweden this german lawmakers discerns that snowden would be able to travel to germany to testify in front of german parliament about the leaks coming out or perhaps stay in russia and have members of german parliament come there. there are a lot of hurdles. one of the things that snowden apparently also wants is to be assured he will not be de

-ed in "the l.a. times." you called for changes to be made to the nsa's massive phone data gathering program and say it's the evidence that it has made us safer is limited. instead it appears that the utility of the metadata program has been conflated with the success of other collection efforts. how do you determine how much surveillance, then, is too much? >> i think we have to weigh what is the size of the program, what is the magnitude of the collection and what are the results it's getting? and even more than that, even if it met that test, even if the metadata program was very successful, we also have to ask, is it necessary to collect all this data or can the program be restructured? in my view, the program can be restructured in a way that has the telecommunications providers retain their own data. i doesn't require the government to get all that data. when we suspect that a phone number is connected to a plot, then we go to the phone company, much as we would do in a criminal investigation. so i think we can get the same information we need. we can continue to protect the country. w
